Harry Manx (Canada)

The New York Times called him ‘deliciously addictive’ and said when you listen to Harry Manx ‘you are listening to an original.’ Seven time Maple Blues award winner, Folk Artist of the Year, Songwriter of the Year, six Juno nominations…..welcome to the Harry Zone. Harry Manx has spent years fusing eastern musical traditions with the blues, switching effortlessly between conventional guitars, harmonica, and banjo and the decidedly different Mohan veena, a 20-stringed instrument invented by Manx’ Indian mentor Vishwa Mohan Bhatt. Manx is often referred to as the “Mysticssippi” Blues Man because musically Harry lives where the depth of Indian music meets the deep groove of the Blues. Blend Indian folk melodies with slide guitar blues, add a sprinkle of gospel and some compelling grooves and you’ll get Manx’s unique “mysticssippi” flavour. It’s hard to resist and keeps audiences coming back for more.
